Breakwater Construction

Breakwater construction is the process of building artificial structures to protect shorelines from erosion and storm damage and is a valuable tool for protecting coastal communities and improving the environment. By protecting shorelines from erosion and storm damage, breakwaters can help to save lives and property.


Would you like to see more sand on your beach?

A Reef Ball Breakwater could be the answere, after years of use the results are in.

Lee E. Harris, Ph.D., P.E. after research concluded ” The submerged breakwater project presented in this CETN demonstrates the technology available to provide shoreline stabilization due to wave attenuation at a site with a low tidal range and wave climate. In addition, the use of artificial reef units for the breakwater also provides habitat enhancement for the marine life, which can be enjoyed by divers and snorkelers.

Take a look at the Army Corps paper.
